    Did you ever have one of those projects where all you did was just pray to get through it all? Well this is my thorn in the side.

    I don't know what I did, but it ended up coming out just as it should have. I don't know if my cutting was off the slightest bit or I just wasn't doing the 1/4" seam correctly but nothing seemed to line up on the edges. I decided to just make my stars all follow in line and not worry about the edges. I never did square up the blocks because I was afraid to cut it. That is how badly it was not in line. Yet when I put all the blocks together and just followed the seam line, it worked out. I didn't even need to square it up when I was all done. It was square!!!!! How that happened, heaven only knows.

    The added stress of needing it finished for a bridal shower didn't help much either, but it was finished in time. My daughter fell in love with it and wants one for herself. SO I guess the next time I want to get all stressed out over a quilt I think I'll make one for her HAHA!!!! Maybe next time, I'll be problem free.

    The pattern is from the Nov/Dec 2005 issue of the Fons & Porter Love of Quilting magazine.

    Thanks for looking

    Such a pretty quilt. So sorry it was a stressful project, but that sure does not show that you had any problems.

    Your quilt turned out beautiful. I think we all make at least one of those quilts that drives us crazy during the process and then we give out a big sigh of relief when it's finished!
